Statutory Assessment Professional Development 2021

In anticipation of a typical statutory assessment process taking place in 2022, Babcock on behalf of the LA are offering support for Y2 and Y6 teachers in a similar way to previous years, but with additional elements reflecting the unusual circumstances surrounding the 2022 cycle.

To reflect the enhanced need for professional development due to there having been two years with no statutory processes we have created a package which we hope is cost effective and comprehensive.

Babcock LDP has teamed up with the Ambition Institute to deliver National Professional Qualifications across the South West.

These professional development programmes support teachers and school leaders at all levels – from new teachers through to trust CEOs.  

Just launched: Attachment Based Beginnings - online learning

Based on our hugely popular Attachment Based Mentoring training, we've designed and developed Attachment Based Beginnings specifically for practitioners working with pre-reception aged children in Early Years settings.

Don’t miss out on our new Attachment Based Mentoring training!

Online Learning Programme - equivalent to 18 hours training - learn at your own pace and at a time that suits you

Enabling children to connect with education through Attachment Based Mentoring (ABM). ABM meets the needs of vulnerable children by providing them with a significant adult in school who will become a key attachment figure and provide a secure base for them.

The training draws on theories and research from the fields of attachment, coaching and resilience, ABM is a comprehensive practical guide as to what to do and how to be, to ensure that the individual needs of each child are met. The approach aims to enable children to feel safe, connected, and capable - forming positive relationships and enjoying learning.

Maths Mind Snacks for Teachers

We are offering a range of one hour PD sessions focussed on specific areas of mathematics, which will allow teachers to work on some maths together as part of a wider mathematics community. This will include exploring understanding of concepts and structures and considering how to make best use of the ideas with learners.

Teachers can attend one or multiple sessions at just £10.00 + VAT per hour long virtual session.

Developing Vocabulary – Professional Development package for teaching & learning

Developing Vocabulary is a CPD package containing a series of six sessions, each written to last around an hour and a half, but can be adapt by the trainer to fit their own programme.

Within the electronic ‘pack’ you will find the following:

  • 6 detailed session plans/presenter notes (these include the subject knowledge needed to run training, links to further reading and a number of suggestions for adaptations)
  • PowerPoint presentations for each session
  • Photocopiable resource masters for the sessions

Pre- and post-session tasks are provided, with the expectation that attendees will complete these in order to get the most out of each session. Each begins with a ‘word warm-up’ and all end with a short activity to encourage reflection on what has been learned during the session.

National PSHE CPD Programme – Updated to virtual programme with a new lower price £400

Babcock LDP have updated their National PSHE CPD Programme with a reduced price for schools. This is a comprehensive, 6 virtual session, tutor led programme, which progressively builds upon the previous session, and enabling participants to apply an evidence based approach to their teaching and strategic developments. Participants will be required to plan and deliver a PSHE lesson, which will be observed - this forms part of the reflective approach underpinning the course.

All necessary course materials are provided; these will support participants during each of the training sessions and will help to direct further independent reading and study. This course will be delivered by Jan Lever, Jigsaw PSHE.

The 6 Sessions:

  • Getting started with the PSHE CPD Programme and Guidance and theory underpinning PSHE
  • RSE and Health Education
  • Relationships Education and sensitive issues and Active teaching and learning and Effective lesson planning
  • Assessment and evaluation and lesson observation and preparation
  • Teaching PSHE that impacts on emotional and mental health
  • Teaching PSHE that impacts on staying safe and safeguarding and Equality and Values
